Reader's Pick Sew-Along: Finishing Up

Hey everyone! I'm not going to waste everyone's time with the last couple of steps, they are simple enough and I don't have any enlightening suggestions to share with you!

So put a hem in your dress, made the belt and any other last finishing touches!

I will be posting my finished dress as soon as my husband's hockey game is over, so he can take some photos!



When you are finished with your dress, please email me a photo of the finished product. I will post everyone's dress on the blog! You can also post it on Flickr, but I will not be counting any photos from Flickr into the drawing for the $50 gift certificate. Feel free to blog about it too! I will link your photo to your blog, if you have one.

To enter the random drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Fabric Mart, email me (Fabricmartblog (a) gmail.com) a photo of your finished garment by Wednesday, May 7th. I will post everyone's finished dresses, then at random select a winner. To be considered, your dress must have been made during the sew along.

So get moving if you are behind! And if you didn't have a moment to sew along with me, feel free to do so now! I'll post some photos tomorrow of my finished dress!

  1. I've been sewing up a storm today now that our company has left. I'll be finished maybe tonight, certainly tomorrow and post pics and send the picture to you.

  2. Looking forward to seeing it Angela! I'm hoping to finish mine in the next couple days, though I've got another big project this week as well. And I haven't managed to find a belt buckle that I like, anyone have a good online place with a nice selection?

Made by a Fabricista: Inspired by Athleisure

Hey all!  I hope you are all healthy, happy, and sewing!  With this craziness of CoVID, I figured at some point this school year, I will be quarantined due to exposure to the virus.  To get through that time, I decided to make something unbelievably comfortable and also cute.  Right?  Fabric Mart usually has athletic fabric and when I am in the mood to sew it up, I snatch it up!  I've never, ever been disappointed in this fabric selection.  Here is a link so you can explore.  Activewear selectionThis white and pink I used are active wear, not swimwear.  Using swimwear for clothing might drape a little differently, so try it out prior to your full commitment.  In other words, purchase a bit extra and make a muslin.  It helps!  Let's start with the white top.  It is a very simple design, and I've used this style/pattern numerous times and I knew it would fit.  Because the fabric is so stretchy I used SewkeysE tape at the shoulders, necklines, and hemlines.  My serger made q…

Made by a Fabricista: A Versatile Cotton 2 Piece Set!

Happy Saturday LOVES! I am finally feeling less overwhelmed and adjusting to this distance teaching.  I am back in full swing for the new 2020-2021 academic school year and even though we encountered challenges the first week, I am happy to have survived the first 3 weeks.  As we plan to transition to brick and mortar (in person) in a few weeks, I am praying that our students and teachers remain safe. 2020 year has allowed  me to learn, reflect, grow and overcome many fears and challenges and be open to change. This month’s make had me in deep reflection about my sewing journey and how much I have grown over the past 3 years.  I am no longer scared of taking risks, speaking my truth and being my authentic self.  If you have been reading my blog posts for a while, I am pretty sure you have seen the growth as well.  Fabricmart has allowed me each month to remain consistent in my journey and next month I celebrate my 3 year blog anniversary with Fabricmart.   Now let’s get into this set!  I…
